Might be a prototype issue. The crown skin is an important load path in aircraft with long fuselages.

After all this is where Boeing knocks the sharp corners off the assembly process and sees what will work and what won't. It might be as simple as waiting for a revised design to arrive on the factory floor.

new idea on how to install the big cabin monuments?

in the cabin top to load large freight pieces :-)

The section isn't joined, I don't think, but still being sub-assembled on the FAUB line. That transition you see in the right side of the photo isn't to the next fuselage section (mid-body), but to a separate panel in the same section.

You can see a few views from further away in the video here:

Former JAL 777-300 that was scrapped in June of 2015. So it's likely being examined by Boeing to review how it's held up in service (it was delivered in July 1998). It might also have been used to help calibrate the robots.

Yep. The scrapped airplane was discussed here before, and pieces of it have been seen sitting outside of the FAUB in Everett. I just looked for the video of the scrapping process again to share, and ended up finding a couple videos. It looks like JA8941 and JA8942 were both used.

Here's JA8941, line number 152.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycZZT5K4a-M

Note that they took it apart into smaller pieces than seen in the FAUB video. Just from knowing that Boeing learned some tough lessons about technical and schedule risks of ambitious new manufacturing processes after the 787, we can make some guesses about what it was for. Practice makes perfect.

Being alloy won`t the fuselage & wings be built in-house like previous triple 7 models? Even if wings are
carbon-fibre covered ( didn`t they buy an autoclave for the wings? ) surely they`d do that in Seattle too?



I don't think so, but maybe the frequent Antonov visits?

They could move some parts by Antonov or Dreamlifter if needed to prevent schedule slides, but normally, large parts from Japan come by ship - I think unloaded in Seattle or the Everett main cargo terminal, then moved by barge to the Mount Baker Satellite Terminal in Everett.

http://www.portofeverett.com/seaport/fa ... r-terminal

To fill Tedd in on a few details - the wings are carbon fiber and all the large wing parts are made in Everett. The fuselage is aluminum, and most of its parts come from the same suppliers that make them for the legacy 777.

The fuselage tube is still aluminium. It is being built using a newer improved alloy that contains lithium. Aluminium lithium alloy is slightly stronger so quite a few parts will end up a few percentage points lighter. Alumnium lithium closes the gap between the current aluminium and carbon fibre when it comes to strength to weight. So even though the 777-9 is 3m longer the tube part itself will probably weigh the same as the 777-300ER.

The 777X wing is significantly larger with a heavy folding mechanism. But as the wing is made out of carbon fibre the weight increase will probably be fairly minor. Same deal with the engines, significantly larger diameter but as it is made from newer materials it will reduce the weight increase. Even the shorter 777-8X is predicted to weigh more than the current 777-300ER.

As the 777X maintains the current maximum takeoff weight the 777-9X when fully loaded will carry less fuel than the 777-300ER before hitting maximum takeoff. The reason the 777X will still be able to fly further is the larger wing provides a better lift to drag ratio meaning less thrust is required to keep it cruising. This combined with more fuel efficient engines should see 10-15% less fuel consumed per hour. So if the 777-9x takes off with 5% less it should still be able to fly 5-10% further.

Some exciting new developments:

https://www.flightglobal.com/news/artic ... ad-451693/

I am assuming that the new wing will have more flex than previous 777s, correct?

Interesting note: first delivery is to NH in 2020..?

"That aircraft will first fly in 2019, and Boeing plans to deliver its first 777-9 to launch customer All Nippon Airways in 2020."

Or is this statement ambiguous?

Where did Flight get a total of 263 orders from ? Boeing has been reporting 326. Is this just misreporting by Flight ?

They must have arranged the numbers in the wrong way.
In the article they say "Boeing holds firm orders for 263 777X aircraft, according to FlightGlobal's Fleets Analyzer database.".
But according to FlightGlobal's Fleets Analyzer database it is 326 firm orders.

Maybe the mechanism isn't there, but surely the component must be there to test the strength of the area? I think that is what people are referring to when they mention the folding tips on the static frame.

I just watched the video posted above and all they were trying to say is another test stand is used to test the wingtip mechanism, and the static test frame just has the load-bearing elements of the wingtip. This could mean it has the load-bearing hinges and locks but does not have the actuators and wiring, but I suppose it may have some of this too.

https://twitter.com/jonostrower/status/ ... 8634963974 says:

This is the longest passenger airliner ever built. But unlike a fully-outfitted aircraft, the static test airframe lacks wiring & systems. It’s entirely structure. Its wings will be bent upward, its fuselage over-pressurized before the first 777X test aircraft is cleared to fly.


and https://twitter.com/mattcawby/status/10 ... 1073645568 shows it leaving the factory with the wing tip up. Presumably they have a way to unlock the tip and hold it in the upright position.

While the 777-9 is long, it's effectively the same length as the 747-8 and only a meter longer than the A340-600 (which I guess maybe we should call the "Dachshund" since it is long, but narrow). :rotfl:

If that ever catches on you will have the Boeing PR people wring their hands to no end.


As long as it's unofficial, I think they'd love it. The connotation is good and there is no bad PR.

Besides, wasn't "LONGER" one of the A340-600's catch words painted on the demo airplane?

I'm surprised by what look like a fifth set of exit doors. I thought Boeing had removed a pair from the original spec. Is this an optional feature or perhaps a glimpse into future model(s)?
